Oh no wait that didn't happen.

Neither will it, not in a month of Sundays.

Basra has been a safer place for British troops over the past 3 years than either Belfast or Derry was in the early 1970s.

In terms of casualties sustained by the British army, that is probably correct but it's a bit like saying Alaska is quite warm compared to the North Pole.

Yes
but as we bring democracy to the North Pole it will get warmer.

There have been some West Point alum's on the wrong side of history going all the way back to Jefferson Davis, class of 1829.

Not according to the American people:


2004 presidential election results:

George W. Bush 62,040,610


John Kerry 59,028,439





It seems though that Saddam and some of his regime buddies would agree with you though.

If this is the best you got
it is pretty weak

everybody realizes that election result was only attained by fabrications, misrepresentations and lies

and with that
he is the only President to serve a second term without a sizable vote of confidence

look at the Nixon, Reagan and Clinton second election results improvement over their first elections.

and by the way Nixon, Reagan and Clinton all got more votes than the other guy and did not need their brother or father's supreme court appointees to put them in office.

That's your favorite stat, isn't it, Sting? Yeehaw, he got more votes.

Must be a nice distraction from his current numbers.

Not as weak as a bunch of qoutes all attempting to say "Bush lied, they died". Everyone in 2004 saw all those quotes that liberals so often use in attempt to discredit the president. The results of the election tell you what the American people thought about that.

In terms of misrepresentations and fabrications, you don't need to look any further than Michael Moore and the artist on the "vote for change tour".

Liberals continue to scream the same messages they used in their unsuccessful attempt to unseat Bush in 2004, and attempt to find solace and hope in a few opinion polls which at the end of the day mean little.

One thing that Nixon, Reagan, and Clinton failed to do that Bush succeeded in doing in his re-election was increase the number of seats his party held in both the House and Senate. The 2004 election was the first time in over half a century that the incumbent President increased his own party's seats in both the House and Senate in the re-election.

Its been nearly 6 years of Bush as President and Republican control of the House and Senate despite the liberals most intense attempts in history to change things. A few movies, some music, lots of jokes, protest, as well as a few other things is about all the liberals have accomplished over the past few years. No change in political position, and little if any influence on national policy.

The difference is, my set of numbers are actually relevant. The party in power sets and implements policy.

Just because the American people got snowed doesn't change the fact that they are still lies. A lie is a lie, no matter how many people believe it.

Bush should not be president in a real democracy the first time anyway. ( if you count the votes of the voters )
